Approximately 30% of clinical trials use Patient Reported Outcomes* (PRO) as primary or secondary endpoints.
PRO can be collected using questionnaires, instruments, diaries, or surveys.
The use of digitized PROs, or ePRO (electronic patient-reported outcomes), is on the rise in today’s health research settings for many reasons, including:
Studies show that electronic patient reporting yields higher quality data than paper-based diaries
ePRO elicits significantly greater subject compliance, sometimes as high as 97%.
Reduced costs when patients use their own devices
Avoidance of secondary data entry errors
Potential cost savings
Are you interested in learning more about how you can use ePRO in your next study?
If so, take a look at our webinar recording on our resources page.
In this informative presentation, you’ll learn about electronic patient outcomes, how they are used, and how a capable IRT can help simplify collection — saving time and money.
*Patient Reported Outcomes (PRO) are measurements used in clinical trials to help better understand a treatment’s efficacy or effectiveness. They are directly reported by the patient who experiences it.
